Okay we know you hate these sites too much and that SA-MP along with the site belongs to you, but can you do me a favor ? By thinking about the community a little bit please?

Although utube is better than dailymotion and some other sites (Much faster upload) We can still get over it,

but honestly deleting thousands of threads was just dumb, People's effort & SA-MP memories are gone with it

You just punished thousands of community members because of what few have done, When you could delete their threads and ban their accounts only.

Anyway this is your site and you're free to do what you want, I just hope you change your mind.

Why'd you actually take offence at them though, thing is they brought more traffic through the site than anything, and by shutting them out, you're closing yourself off to potential revival...

Literally shooting yourself in the foot.

A really mature response.

The Screenshots and Videos section was mostly links to utube, which were broken after I blocked the site. It made sense to empty the forum.

I saw videos on utube that were up for 5-6 years suddenly get censored. What changed?

It's sad, yeah. But the days of PacMan goggle are long behind us. Consider when goggle/utube becomes a political machine, it's not just hurting a few links on this forum, it's hurting every person who ever uploaded anything to utube. There's no end to censorship. They now have to take down anything that anyone wants taken down.

Goggle giveth, Goggle taketh away.

They got greedy...



But really though, many of the copyright claims have been shown to be false and done by shill companies that simply do it for the revenue.

Yet they don't take down the full movies, the music videos and the rest, they only try and take down those which can give them revenue.


And yet goggleeyes don't even try and weed out the crappy mofos that are doing it, and simply allow them to ruin peoples accounts and videos simply to make a buck.

Even though I understand this and I agree with the Kalcor's point more or less, I think that Screenshots and Videos were essential part of these forums, as it was the only source of media related to SA-MP, that can't be found elsewhere. It was really nice to observe, what other people scripted in SA-MP, and for me it was also one of few ways how to show others what I have scripted myself.

Perhaps return the Screenshots forum at least?

how about making it so you need 15 reputation to post in screenshots & videos? that way you would get rid of 99% of filter bypassers

everybody happy then?

So SJWs and DMCA-abusers finally won. Congratulations to them.
